Lakeview Spartans Homecoming 2016 this October 7th


Because of the location of our store on W. Columbia Ave and 28th Street, we always stock Lakeview Spartans hoodies and t-shirts in both adult and kids sizes.

The homecoming parade goes right by our store and lots of people line 28th street on both sides of Columbia to watch it. The police close Columbia for a little while so the parade can go through. Lots of people usually attend the tailgate party across the street in the middle school parking lot and watch the parade as well.

The Lakeview Spartans will be playing Norrix at 7 p.m. The parade goes by here usually between 6 and 6:30. The parade route starts by Calhoun Christian, goes down Territorial, and then comes down 28th Street to the stadium area.

In the week or two leading up to homecoming, people like to pop into our store to get a hoodie or a t-shirt to show their support for the Spartans.

Last year, we discovered that people who had grade-school kids walking in the parade came to our store because we had Lakeview shirts in kids’ sizes, which aren’t as readily available at other stores. District schools often have t-shirt sales prior to homecoming, but if you miss the deadline or the order form gets lost among all the other bales of paper the grade schools send home, we’ll have the kids’ shirts that you need.

Right now we have t-shirts in purple (adult & youth) or gray (adult). The purple ones are 100% cotton and the gray ones are 50/50 cotton polyester blend. They are made from nice quality Gildan shirts. Hoodies are also Gildan brand and a 50/50 cotton polyester blend.

Hoodies $23.99 and t-shirts $10.99

Touch and feel a knife before you buy it

knives for sale in Battle Creek

One of the best things about picking out a new knife at the Battle Creek Gift Shop is that you get to feel how the knife feels in your hands. You can compare different knives and pick out the one that fits your hand and feels like it will serve your purposes the best.

We keep our knives in display cases, and you can ask to see any of them. This offers you a better opportunity to find the perfect knife because other stores keep their knives in plastic clam shell packaging for the most part. And if you’re knife shopping on the internet, you’ll never know what you’re getting until it arrives in the mail.

We stock a variety of knives, and most of them are affordable. You’ll find Kershaw folding pocket knives, fixed blade skinners, survival knives, neck knives, and multi tools.
